The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) has learned that a Canton Repository reporter has dragged the Boccieri family into the Boccieri/Schuring race for Congress.
According to a source close to the Boccieri campaign, The Rep reporter appeared out of thin air in the Boccieri neighborhood and quizzed the family about their residency in the city.
The Report understands that The Rep is in the business of gathering information to report to its readers. But does this include pumping the family for information?
The Report in a sit down with Kirk Schuring over a year ago talked to him about his relationship with The Rep. From his perspective, as far as favorable treatment is concerned; he admitted that The Repository has been very favorable to him over his years as a local politician.
Favoring Schuring is one thing, but seemingly becoming an investigative arm of the Schuring campaign is quite another.
This episode has smackings of "tabloid journalism" to it.
Question: Do the "powers that be" at The Rep owe John Boccieri an apology?
